TED Talk: Norman Foster on Green Architecture

TED Talk: Norman Foster on Green Architecture

“As an architect you design for the present, with an awareness of the past, for a future which is essentially unknown. The green agenda is probably the most important agenda and issue of the day […] all the projects which have, in some way, been inspired by that agenda are about a celebratory lifestyle, in a way celebrating the places and spaces which determine the quality of life.”

In this TED Talk originally delivered at the DLD 2007 Conference, Norman Foster delves into the topic of green architecture, and how his own work has utilized computer modeling to create green and essentially “pollution-free” buildings. Learn more about Foster’s view of sustainability by watching the video above.
